Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) | [Mindy Kaling]

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

Publisher's Summary

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!

In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.

    "A good book to pass the time away."

    The stories were interesting to hear but why all the profanity? I don't have be reminded that you're an adult if you think all adults use profanity, they don't.

    Story
    "Not what I was expecting from her"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    To be honest, she isnt what I expected. After reading Tina Feys Bossy Pants and Amy's Yes Please, I became hooked on female comedy writers stories. I like the shows shes in and or written for so i assumed I'd like Mindy... and at times I did... but for the most part her book is full of opinions that really make me feel like she is a spoiled person who thinks really highly of herself and doesnt respect the people who got her there.

    Like parts where she just gets up and leaves works when she disagrees with the man who got her to where she was. With such a high and mighty attitude about it, and never really apologizes about it. Yet she bounces between, im just lazy and wanted to get by, yet im just an awesome amazing writer and person. Maybe its sarcasm or joking but her tone and the way she delivers doesnt come across that way...

    Maybe she should of waited till she was older, then maybe she would have come off as more humble, wise, honest, less opinionated about boys and men, and funny... like Tina and Amy's books.

    Over all this book made me dislike her...


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mindy Kaling again?

    I dont think so....


    Which character – as performed by Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur – was your favorite?

    Michael Shur


    Do you think Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Maybe, I dont know, whens she older maybe


    Any additional comments?

    No, just sad. Onto Bedwetter and Girl Walks Into a Bar. You want a good comedy Tina Feys and Amy Poellers books are amazing!

    "Funny Smart and Fabulous"
    Where does Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The best.


    What other book might you compare Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) to and why?

    Tina Fey's Bossy Pants, Rachel Dratch's Girl Walks Into a Bar, and Lena Dunham's Not That Kind of Girl


    What about Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ’s performance did you like?

    Mindy says so many things that I think and would never verbalize. She also has a unique take life as a single woman and is a great story teller. Mindy is brilliant; among the most talented comedy writers and performers out there today. I didn't watch the Office after Season 3, and only saw one or two episodes of Season 1, so I didn't know her from that series. I started watching The Mindy Project and was hooked.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy this book. I've listened to some chapters twice!

    "Decent, but expected better."

    As a fan of the Mindy Project I was very excited to read Mindy killings book. However I was little disappointed in some of the subject matter and the topics. I don't realize how similar Mindy was to her Mindy Project character, but she is quite superficial and very basic. One might call her a basic bitch. That is why I give this book 3.33 stars

    "I hope teenage girls don't listen to this"

    Full of bad life-advice. Funny at times, but overall really ignorant. I don't get offended by many things. I like some pretty raunchy comedy, but this is offensive in the sense that the snippets she shares as her life's lessons are actually really awful ways at looking at life. It's not funny enough to warrant the terrible things she says. It's not terrible in a Louis CK way, so don't get the wrong idea and get this because you're assuming it's that kind of humor.
